Re: Top Down Furlers

I just purchased a Selden GX15. I have deployed and furled the sail in light air at the slip but not while sailing. I am leaving for a 2 week cruise today and plan to use the furler extensively. I also plan to film it in operation and post to my website.

I previous had an ATN sock and tacker and did not like wrestling with it on deck. Snubbing the sail if the wind increased suddenly was always difficult and prompted me not to use it very often.
